La Gran, concluded
Here are the last two things I've done with La Gran. Fortunately I was able to get the Virginia Carpet Dolphin to model for me. He was so excited that his friends from the aquarium in Gulfport had been rescued from the Gulf that he would have modeled anything for me today. The dolphin is wearing the Ballerina Wrap from Hollywood Knits, made in La Gran (Electric Blue I think). Its basically a wide scarf middle with long skinny ends that you can wear around your shoulders/flippers and tie several ways. It does a pretty good job of keeping my shoulders warm and since it ties on, I don't have to worry about it slipping off while I'm doing stuff/flips for the tourists. On the pillow next to the dolphin is a hat made from some La Gran leftover from other projects. The pattern was in an Interweave Knits but I can't remember which one. I think it was part of a group of patterns for easy gift knitting or something like that. It did not originally call for La Gran, but I was able to get gauge so I did it with the La Gran. I had to add puff balls to it just to give it enough weight to stay on my head.

Just trust me on this one.
